Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

That reminds me, how did the Ghost has two designations: AIF-7 and QF-4000? The only case in real life when that happened is the jointly-developed Chinese/Pakistani Thunder. And speaking of the X-9, if we just talk about raw numbers, how good are its stats to the YF-19 and YF-21? Also, anyone here k...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Say, how hard is it exactly to train anyone to control a VF and the ghost fighters at the same time? If I remember correctly, Frontier did mentioned somewhere that Luca was a special case even among SMS pilots And between the AIF-9 and AIF-7, which one would immigration fleets choose? Also, after th...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

You know, I've been wondering why haven't anyone made a 5th generation compact VF that positions itself as the successor of the VF-171? Is there anything restrictive to size when it comes to stuffs like the Fold Wave system? Also, what kind of immigrant feet that would choose an all-Ghost defense fo...

Beam saber or beam naginata?

I have been wondering why did Zeonic had the Gelgoog Marine and Jaeger using beam sabers instead beam naginata like the previous model? Is this because beam sabers are both easier to use and cheaper to make--I can imagine pilot scared of cutting themselves while using the beam naginata. On the other...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Do you think that anyone would try to do anything to squeeze out a few more years of service from the VF-171 by upgrading it? Is there anything we can do to this platform? Or is the VF-25 is too much of a cost-effective offering to pass by? And what is the chance of one of the "missing numbers" VF a...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Speaking of how ubiquitous Shinsei and General Galaxy are in the VF business, do you think that any other companies could successfully broke into the market to a noticeable degree? Because as I see it, we've pretty much hit the technological ceiling with 5th generation, there are at lease one model ...

Anyone found it weird that Getter, Mazinger, and Gundam eventually have reality-warping power?

Anyone find it weird that the three representatives of combination, super and real robo eventually step into the territory of dimensional-transcending powers? And it happened to the machines piloted by the original protagonists no less? I suppose you could chalk it up to the escalation of power with...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

The fact that the SV-51 and its descendants were so good at dogfighting VF as you reminded me suddenly feels like an omen -- are we back to fighting humans in the upcoming Delta movie? We recently have a discussion about if Windermere had any fight left in them, an idea which you shot down, so would...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Just want to give people a heads-up: The next VF (the VF-14's descendant) will be revealed at the ongoing Tamashii Nation exhibition.

Also, could someone tell me what is this all about: https://i.4cdn.org/m/1604788889624.jpg

Isn't AKB0048 already just that?
Yeah, I know. The same people whom I mentioned in my post also begged for another season of AKB0048.

And AKB0048 is weird in a way, too. I almost never heard people discuss it while it was still on air, but everyone who had watched it told me that they loved it.

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Say, do you guys think that there are some degree of crossover between Macross fans and idol anime (Idolmaster, Love Live, etc.) fan? Looking back at the sheer number of opinion that Kawamori should just make a pure idol Macross next, maybe that is the case? Of course, without VF and war could we ev...

Gundam Age 10th anniversary speculation

Do you guys think that Sunrise and Bandai will do anything special for the 10th anniversary of Gundam Age next year, or will they try their best to forget its existence?

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

King Heinz Neirich Windermere is the actual head of state and is also a quasi-religious figure due to his status as the Wind Singer. He wields most, if not all, of the actual governmental power on Windermere IV. Hirohito was a figurehead with relatively little actual power who was used as a symbol ...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Windermere IV's government is a monarchy... either an absolute monarchy or a fairly weak constitutional monarchy in which the monarch wields the vast majority of the political power. The populace doesn't seem to really be invested in the business of government except for the social elite who volunt...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Not entirely, but Windermere IV's campaign against the New UN Government was basically dependent entirely upon using the Wind Singer (Prince Heinz) to weaponize Var syndrome. That, plus their more advanced main fighter, was what Windermere's Aerial Knights were counting on to overcome the numerical...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

With the next Detla movie revealed, do you have any expectation to it? We know that a descendant ofthe VF-14 might appear, but what other VF might appear? An YF-32? Also, is Windermere military spent entirely?
